Big River Revival

Those talented kids at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts are at it again. The magnet high school’s Theatre Department will be taking its sixth production to the International Thespian Society’s annual festival in Lincoln, Neb., June 25-30. Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn originally ran in November, and was chosen as a Mainstage Selection for the festival. But before they go, the approximately 100 students involved need a helping hand from the community. To raise funds so all of the participating cast and crew can make the journey, Las Vegas Academy presents a special revival of Big River at 7 p.m. June 20-22 in the school’s Lowden Theater for the Performing Arts (9th Street and Clark Avenue).

Bipolar

By Ted Lewins

Charlie, Bipolar’s mono-named lead vocalist, knocked me out with her one-two punch of guttural screaming rage and melodic vocals. Rounded out by bassist Chris Kmit, who’s head seemed to be on a permanent swivel with some major windmills, Bipolar is one badass four-piece. This local band—who formed in Sacramento, Calif., in 2003 and relocated to Vegas in 2008—offered a powerful blend of alternative and melodic metal, sounding somewhere between Deftones and Glassjaw.
